cases brought against the controversial decrees declared by mr. morsi last week. here's where the intrigue comes in. last week one of his decrees banned anyone, any authority, even the judiciary from questioning and overturning any of his decisions since he took office. we'll see how that plays out. meantime protests continue. there doesn't seem to be a resolution to this conflict. the leaders of the opposition factions have dug in saying we're not going to have dialogue until mr. morsi rescinds his decrees. a few hours ago we spoke to one of his top advisers and we asked him, is that a possibility? >> what kind of concessions are you willing to make. >> this decision is up to the president, not for us. >> is it possible -- is it possible he will rescind his decrees. >> dialogue with our -- >> are you prepared to consider rescinding, adjusting some of these decrees? >> decree is up to the president. we are accepting it. we may have some reservations. but as a whole we must take a step to -- forward, not to backward. >> reporter: that was one of the top advisers for mr. morsi.
-fire between hamas and israel. >> we thank mr. morsi for his efforts in brokering a cease-fire which is incredibly fragile but this is not acceptable. this is not what the united states of american and taxpayers expect. our dollars will be directly related to the progress toward democracy. >>reporter: the government today emphasized the president's powers are temporary and are designed to hold members of the previous regime accountable for corruption and crime but 19 -- not many in washington are convinced. >> we have to be a little cautious about saying we are just going to go in there and bully them into doing the right thing. that is why diplomacy is important the way we do it is important. we have to try to influence behind-the-scenes. >>reporter: the egyptians storm took a dive amid turmoil dropping ten points on the first day of trading after the announcement. >>gregg: thank you, steve, from washington, dc. new developments threatening to unravel the cease-fire between israel and hamas with israel reporting spotting an iranian ship loaded with rockets for gaza which would end t
, obama found in his phone calls that mr. morsi recognized the danger of an escalating conflict. in the long run as the united states have an expanded role in what is going on over there? guest: in the end without some american intervention or leadership role, it is very difficult to envision a genuine comprehensive peace. the parties have to want it. and it is clear. part of the problem for mr. obama is that when he came to office the first time around, he did make that a central issue. he appointed senator mitchell as the first envoy. it was a priority position for him. and he did not get anywhere. in part, the in the arm it was really good for it. more importantly, the government really did not cooperate with him as he had expected. and the relationship between the prime minister and obama was not very good and has not been a very good. this is an opportunity for the israelis to rebuild it now that he has won reelection. it is no secret that the israelis preferred to see met romney become president. that was an issue. but he felt he did a lot and did not get anywhere. the eco
in protest. some sued to dissolve the panel. you'll recall one of the controversial decrees announced by mr. morsi last week banned any authority, even the judiciary, from disbanding this panel. he wants it moved forward, suzanne, and one of the messages, he is aggressively pushing now is once have you this nationwide referendum, about 15 days and it's a yes vote, all those controversial decrees that people were upset about will be canceled immediately. he is hoping that will calm the opposition factions down behind us. we'll see if it does. >> yeah. we have yet to see whether or not that will satisfy the critics that have been on the streets there in tahrir square. reza, thank you so much. really appreciate it. we'll be following the story. >>> this is a piece that you're only going to see on cnn. rebels, they are making significant gains now inside syria. we're going to take you inside the country to a site where a government plane was shot down. plus, there are celebrations that are going on in ramallah, but not everybody is happy the united nations is making a move to recognize the pale
with mubarak. we are going to oust him. >> now today mr. morsi and the muslim brotherhood are scheduled to meet with the judges, the supreme judicial council, that's one of the groups that his decrees undermine. the problem is, there is no dialogue to get to the leaders of some of the other oppositions. >> and more than $4 billion as well and the judges are threatening to strike. so even with all of that, no decision for morsi to revoke that decree? >> well, we just spoke to one of his senior advisers, and he seemed to suggest that he might consider it, but many will say that if he backs up, it would be a politically wrong move for him. that it will be a sign of weakness. for now, there are no indications from his office that he wants to reverse the decree. >> and reza, just as we were going on air israel's defense minister ehud barak resigned. how could this affect today's talks between israel and hamas? >> it's not clear how ehud barak's resignation is going to impact these talks. but i doubt these talks are going to fall apart the decision for a cease-fire last week were made by the top offi
's a vacuum that has to be filled. the u.s. has to step up and provide leadership. president morsi in cairo called mr. jabari, the terrorist who was killed, a martyr. the muslim brotherhood does have a close relationship with hamas. iran has given hundreds of millions of dollars to hamas in recent months. so the region is in turmoil. the u.s. should step up firm for our ally, make clear where we are, try to get turkey and egypt -- both of whom have been sympathetic to hamas -- to stand down. >> that's not happening. john, u.s. foreign policy in the middle east, maybe elsewhere, but in the middle east right now in the wake of libya and benghazi, we are at low ebb, john, in the eyes i dare say of middle eastern countries and in the eyes of european countries and maybe in the eyes of asian countries. our cia director is gone. there's some kind of sex scandal going on. they all testified today on benghazi. no one knows what came out of that. my point is this, if president obama is asking the president of egypt who has sympathies with all these terrorists and guerrillas, where's the clear statem
, this was frightening at how quick it happened and how it came immediately after susan rice praised what mr. morsey did there. >> right, dave. and mohammed morsi is actually egypt's first democratically elected president. but many of his people are protesting because he issued this decree that puts all his decisions in the past, present and future above judicial review. he can do whatever he wants and the lower courts can't. ' assembly writing egypt's new constitution can do so without any objections now, the u.s. state department issued a statement making their reservations about president morsey crystal clear and basically stating that the entire idea of the arab spring was the opposite of what's happening in egypt. the state department says, quote: one of the aspirations of the revolution was to ensure that power would not be overly concentrated in the hands of any one person or institution. the current constitutional vacuum in egypt only resolved by checks and balances and fundamental freedoms, individual rights and rule of law consistent with egypt's international commitment. u.s. officials have
